We will cherish splendid Moscow architecture, while taking a deep dive into Russian mentality and inner philosophy of life, and will try to sense it through aesthetics of the buildings of various epochs. From austere early churches to imperial splendor, from frail beauty of Art Nouveau to Soviet constructivism, from bland utilitarianism of late USSR years to modern architectural insights – an unforgettable journey inside Russian soul, which, according to Winston Churchill, is "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma".

I was born in Moscow and love my city. I've been to 25+ countries and know well what is special about Moscow. I worked 15+ years as a graphic designer and also enjoy studying philosophy, sociology and culture. I translate American poetry into Russian as a hobby. You will definitely love Moscow and will usderstand Russian mentality better.
